Aircraft Viewing Area's | Melbourne
A fabulous free activity is plane spotting, watching planes land and take off on the outskirts of Melbourne airport (aka Tullamarine airport).
There are various locations around the airport where aircraft can be observed and photographed.
So, pack the car with cushions, blankets and a picnic basket, get comfy at one of the locations below.
You'll be seeing (and hearing!) aeroplanes taking off from and landing at Tullamarine airport.
Directly overhead, so close you can almost touch them, are planes of all sorts taking off and landing only a few minutes apart. A380s, 747s, A350s, and even occasionally the next-gen 737-800s.
